6:41am
6:42am
6:43am
california's budget picture is ing a lot rosier. governor brown's prop 30 tax measure is in effect in california's budget picture is looking a lot rosier. >> it does, but there's some question now about how the governor got it top billing on the ballot. here's melissa griffin. an appeals court has ruled on a sneaky move by the governor. >> exactly. there's a reason why his measure was the top of the
6:44am
ticket. and molly monger's competing tax measure was far down on the ticket. and they revealed it was a abuse of power. generally the conventional wisdom is things at the top of the ballot have a better chance of passings, the further down they get on the ballot, they are more likely to vote no or not vote. how do we decide what order things go on the ballot. traditionally it's been determined by who gets their signatures in first. in last year's election, the pta backed income tax for education got their signatures in first so they should have been at the top of the ballot. jerry brown was in a pickle. he needed his prop 30 on the ballot and needed pull position. what was he going to do. he needed to pass a law. most laws go into effect the year after it's enacted.
6:45am
he needed to pass a law that's enacted immediately. here's what democrats in sacramento did. they created a 1000-dollar appropriation, slapped it onto a bill that would put jerry brown's bill at the top of the ballot and passed it as a budget bill because budget bills go into effect immediately. of course when this happened the taxpayers association went to court and said absolutely, this is totally abusive, there's no way you can slap money onto the unrelated bill, say it's for a budget. and make it immediately. they said they're not going to stop the election from going ahead to the current system and on friday, third circuit appeals court ruled that what happened here was an abuse of process and should not happen again. >> what happens to the bill that puts constitutional amendments at the top of the ballot. >> it should be voided. they didn't say specifically but they did say it was
6:46am
entirely unconstitutional scenario and said that should actually make the law that ordered things on the ballot differently null and void. >> a lot of politics in the politics. is it retroactively back to november. >> unfortunately the election results stand but this is a going forward basis and not going to be able to do this again. they have to make sure budget items are budget related. and we are sell bright the -- celebrating the president's inauguration and there's controversy over champagne. >> some folks who have basically the best job ever working for the champagne bureau is what's going to be served as the california dinner is california champagne and they say the only champagne that's real comes from that region. the united states allows champagne to be used as a
6:47am
reference to a process. we have corbel california champagne and the spokesperson says they should have a glass of their own product and relax. >> sparkling wine. >> we know that. chill out. >> exactly. >> thank you. thank you guys. and you can find more of her segment on cbssf.com. we are all a getting ready for the big super bowl with the 49ers and the ravens right here on cbs 5. in the meantime we're going to enjoy some of this beautiful weather because it's not going to last very long. we're going o to see big changes coming up and rainmaking a return to the bay area. it is cold in spots. clouds hanging off the coastline in most areas. it is mostly clear to begin the day. by the afternoon, hazy sunshine the rule all the way to the coastline and then some big changes in the not too distant
6:48am
future. we start to talk about a return of rain as we head toward the middle of the week. nice and clear. 30 degrees in concord. 28 and cold in santa rosa and high pressure and sliding east ward as the ridge moves out of the way. things going to change here quite drastically. the sunshine at sfo, no problems there. if you're heading across the country, snow and cold temperatures and windy conditions and 11 degrees in chicago for today. 72 degrees in the monterey bay. around our bay temperatures in the 60s. east bay probably low to mid- 60s and inside the bay, about 65 degrees in oakland. 63 in san francisco. next couple of days, looks like nice weather a a chance of showers. wednesday, possibly more showers over weekend. let's check on the roads with elizabeth. we're doing great if you're heading towards the bay bridge. this tells the traffic story. it is martin luther king holiday so banks and schools
6:49am
